We've spent long hours fixing up the house we live in, but now there's only one or two smaller-ish projects left. So I find myself looking at older houses in town when I drive by thinking how cool it would be to fix that one up, oh wait, that one, no that one! I'll probably never get to fix up another house, but that's where you luck out, it'll make me dive farther into the sewing realm...
And so you might not have noticed, but I've never shown my ironing board in my tutorials. There's a reason for that:
So I had this fabric, no idea of what I was originally going to use it for, and some bias tape, and a can of spray paint.
One ugly ironing board, turned slightly more pleasing to the eye.
I also picked up this handy little ironing board hook, so the iron and the ironing board reside neatly tucked away behind the closet door when not in use (that is, when I actually take time to put it away).
